Early Times Report

Srinagar, June 23: In a bid to ensure transparency in the administration, Governor NN Vohra has asked top government functionaries in the state to expedite cases against corrupt officials and ensure responsive public service delivery.
Sources in the Raj Bahwan told Early Times that acting tough against corruption in the departments and inordinate delay in according sanction for prosecution of corrupt officers, Vohra has issued a series of directions to secretaries and the General Administration Department (GAD). They have been asked to submit detailed reports on status of various cases of investigations including decision on sanction of prosecution.
"The step has been taken in view of the reports that certain cases were closed halfway and could not see the light of the day. In the past even the cases which were under active investigation were closed not as per the rules," sources maintained.
They said that the Governor has directed that sanction for prosecution should be expedited so that the corrupt officers don't manage to take advantage of the delay.
Sources further said that the Governor is also likely to seek report on completion of Annual Performance Reports (APRs) of all government employees with regard to each department.
Similarly, sources said that that direction will be issued to the GAD to ensure that websites of all the departments are updated.
Sources said that Governor Vohra will shortly hold review of all anti-corruption related issues with the top brass of the State Vigilance Commission (SVC) and State Vigilance Organization (SVO).
Sources said that the directions will also to be issued to all the Administrative Secretaries to personally review all pending Vigilance matters in their respective departments and submit reports to the Raj Bhawan.
It is to mention here that the number of officers facing corruption charges were awarded plum postings.
Sources said that there was a deluge of complaints received by the SVO and SVC from last few years.
"In a number of complaints in 2015- to 2017, allegations were mainly about violation of codal formalities in the award of contracts in works, purchases, appointments, promotions and transfer, denial of services by the government departments etc," sources disclosed.
The people believe that the officials in departments and government-owned corporations have not shown accountability as there are no checks and inspections.
It is to mention here that the previous government had decided to order premature retirement of 'corrupt and incapable' officials, who have not been able to deliver in their respective departments.
The government had also constituted a high-level committee headed by Chief Secretary and the committee was to be the final authority to take action against the corrupt officials.
In 2015 the government had removed several tainted officials and non-performing bureaucrats from the plum postings.
